Madden 13 and FIFA 13 are getting voice commands in an EA Sports facelift, according to Electronic Arts at the Microsoft Press Conference this morning.
FIFA 13 will allow you to call subs, formations, and give you AI players commands, all by talking to your Kinect. For those of you who love yelling at the TV, FIFA 13 will also feature a ref feedback feature. If you don't like a call and shout something obscene at your television, the ref in the game will give you a yellow card. You are no longer shouting into a canyon soccer fans! Someone is listening, and that guy has the power to eject you from the game.
Madden 13, demoed at the press conference by the great Joe Montana, will let you call plays, highlight individual players, and of course, hike the ball. Plus, you'll actually be able ot execute audibles like god intended: with your voice. Looks like you'll finally get the chance to really feel like an elite NFL quarterback by talking very aggresively at your television. The voice commands in Madden 13 will work on both offense and defense.
